There are so many people out there trying to push internet marketing as the easiest way for newbies to get instant wealth right now.
It seems to have gone into overdrive. Inboxes are flooded with offers from groups and courses from people using social networking sites to follow what these so-called gurus say they should be doing, spam!

Selling someone else’s recycled ebook is not the way to go. Trying to compete with people on the first page of Google using AdWords is not the way to go.
Learning how to find niche markets and how to create the products they want will get you on the right track one step at a time instead of listening to inflated promises of instant riches.
I want to get this message out. It is time that people start to realize that they will never get rich by following these impossible dreams.

The average gentleman will never be able to have an expensive product. Can you imagine someone buying a thousand pound course in the knitting and sewing niche?
Sure you can create a great lifestyle in niche marketing, but nowadays, people have gotten caught up in the guru hype about million dollar pitches and think that taking their courses will produce the same results. it will not
